DCKT Contemporary is pleased to present LAURA LOBDELL’s Traces of Color, an exhibition of recent paintings on paper. LOBDELL’s gouache paintings are layered meditations on time.

LOBDELL begins by painting color forms in gouache with large, Chinese calligraphy brushes. The spontaneous, gestural sweeps and spills become the starting point for lines and marks made with fine calligraphy brushes and fountain pen ink. These lines are repetitive and somewhat ordered, following a pattern of rules. The reality of the grounds makes strict application of the “rules” awkward or unappealing. The linear marks are a frustrated attempt to create order over the unruly color fields, literally traces of color.

LOBDELL holds a MFA from the School of Visual Arts and has been a participant in the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture’s residency program and the Artist in the Marketplace program at The Bronx Museum of the Arts. She has been included in group exhibitions at The Bronx Museum of the Arts, the Arts Club of Washington and the Art Institute of Chicago.
